Details: This poster is of a vintage ad. It shows the Statue of Liberty torch against a background of blue with white stars. At the bottom it says Democracy¿ a challenge.
Democracy can denote either the power or complete rule by the people. The term was coined in the middle of the fifth-fourth century BC to denote the political systems then existing in some Greek city-states, notably Athens following a popular uprising in 508 BC. In political theory, democracy describes a small number of related forms of government and also a political philosophy. Many people use the term democracy as shorthand for liberal democracy, which may include additional elements such as political pluralism, equality before the law, the right to petition elected officials for redress of grievances, due process, civil liberties, human rights, and elements of civil society outside the government.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
